To the Editor:
Some criminal justice professionals demonstrate strong leadership abilities while others distinguish themselves as standout managers. Scott McNurlin has done both.
As a Goodhue County resident, I am pleased to have the opportunity support of Chief Deputy Scott McNurlin for Goodhue County sheriff. I am retired from law enforcement and have known McNurlin for over 25 years. Currently, I serve as an adjunct professor at Concordia University where I teach online courses in the Department of Criminal Justice.
McNurlin has consistently demonstrated a deep understanding of crime issues that face Goodhue County communities. Scott understands that each community is different and that each has different law enforcement needs.
In addition to securing a supplemental Federal COPS Grant to add an additional drug enforcement investigator and a recent federal grant to help fund the new Goodhue County 800 Mhz radio network, Scott has been a solid supporter of local citizen/law enforcement initiatives.
One such example is the Cannon Falls TRIAD group, a senior citizen crime prevention program.
My wife and I have found Scott to be exceptionally outgoing and helpful. We have always felt comfortable contacting him on matters large and small. Furthermore, I admire his ability to balance his community, church, family, and professional responsibilities. He is an excellent representative of the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office.
